Saturday’s meeting between No. 17 Pitt and No. 24 Tennessee will represent the fourth iteration of the “Johnny Majors Bowl.”

The College Football Hall of Fame coach, of course, has ties to both programs: He played for the Volunteers from 1953-56, coached the Panthers from 1973-76 (winning a national title in his last season there), then left Pittsburgh to coach his alma mater from 1977 through 1992. (He then returned to Pitt to finish his career, coaching the Panthers from 1993-96.)

Curiously, Majors never beat Pitt after taking over at Tennessee, losing 30-6 in 1980 and 13-3 in 1983. The teams’ only other meeting came in 2021, when Pitt beat the Volunteers and first-year coach Josh Heupel 41-34.

To date, Tennessee is 0-3 vs. the Panthers; will this finally be the year the Vols get on the board in this series?

The Volunteers, for what it’s worth, looked efficient and explosive in a 59-10 victory over Ball State in Week 1. Pitt, meanwhile, battled through a gritty 38-31 win over West Virginia in the Backyard Brawl. Will Pitt be able to avoid an emotional letdown game following that win?

Only time will tell. Here’s how you can tune in and watch it play out:
